It’s officially October, and that means in less than a month I’ll be rolling around with Aiai and the rest once again in Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD. The return of Monkey Ball has been a long time coming — and to hold you over ’til its release, Sega’s got a new trailer to show you, featuring multiple courses and the remake’s party games.


It looks like the number of party games has been pulled back from the Wii original’s 50 to just ten this time around. Monkey Target is still around though, which is easily one of the highlights of any Monkey Ball’s party game list. It’s a shame to see the roster shrink like that, but if you’re more a fan of the courses, you’ll still have a hundred of those to roll on through.

Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz HD will arrive on Nintendo Switch and other platforms on October 29th. You can pre-order your copy on Amazon.
